Remnants of a lost paradise endure amongst us.
If you recognise any of the queeroes above or their storied abode the Dirty Habit - or perhaps you are a fan of the artist Liz Ham and her fabled photographic practice - then you might wish to vote for the audience award aspect of the National Portrait Prize. We'll be down in Canberra on this icy Friday evening to witness the work of all of the other finalists. See their astounding images here.
Wednesday June the 29th ~
It's a busy mid-week in the meantime, with the advent of Wynside Out bringing speakers, games, food and live music to Wynyard Park both Wednesday and Thursday. The full program is here.
I'll be spinning between 2 and 4PM each day and despite the claims of this Broadsheet reporter you can be safely assured that I will not be 'dropping' any 'commercial house'. It's a free event so if yr in the city swing by and hear something real.
By evening Swingin' at the Speakeasy will be underway once more a block or so down the way at Palmer & Co. Gratis swing dancing to live music from 7 then anything goes for my set between 10 and 2.
Thursday June the 30th ~
Day two of Wynside Out is a dead-ringer for day one in terms of the line-up and times but, as ever, you'll not cop a single song repeated under my auspices, so by all means come again.
Saturday July the 2nd ~
After an in-depth chat with Darren Hanlon about his recent travails last week on Jack Off I didn't expect to be welcoming any guests this weekend but our producer Hugh is working with the Sunnyboys and keen to drag them in, so you never know, I might not be Alone With You between 3 and 5 after all.
Regardless of the outcome there later that night you can be assured that I will once again be ensconced in the utmost luxury and convivial hospitality at the peerless Dean and Nancy on 22. Key founders are gallivanting around Italy toasting being named in the top 100 bar people worldwide as we speak, yet even in their absence the place shines. I count my lucky stars to work in such vibrant settings with truly good people. Join us for free from 9 til 12.30.
